Foot disease affects about 6% of people with diabetes and includes ulcer, infection, or rupture of the fingers. It can affect social participation and livelihood and impair the quality of life of a patient.
The diabetic foot is a severe complication of diabetes that affects one foot of the ulcer that is associated with neuropathy or peripheral artery disease of the lower limb in diabetic patients. Most of the ulcers will heal, while some of them will remain active and some of them will finally begin to limb amputation within 6-18 months after the evaluation.
With age and duration of diabetes, the risk of leg ulcers and limb dissection increases. The management of diabetic foot involves a multidisciplinary approach.
Diabetic neuropathy is a common factor in almost 90% of diabetic foot ulcers. It affects the motor, sensory, and autonomic fibers.
What causes diabetic foot?
